"The fact of being an underdog changes people in ways that we often fail to appreciate. It opens doors and creates opportunities and enlightens and permits things that might otherwise have seemed unthinkable."
Malcolm Gladwell

This tasting is all about the grapes you might not have heard of. The mavericks. The underdogs. The under-appreciated. The weird, the wacky, the unfashionable. The tricky to grow or the tricky to harvest, the ones that hate the cold or the heat or the bugs. The ones that stopped being popular a generation ago.

Why? Because there's magic in most varieties, if you can be patient and inventive and irreverent. If you're ready to be a maverick.

Humble Grape winemakers are all of those things, and they love unpopular grapes. And we love the wines they make.

Swing by in September to try six of our favourite underdog grapes. It could be Rotgipfler, Pecorino, Palomimo, Cesanese, Zweigelt, Cinsaut... (we'll spend the interim choosing our favourites – just expect the unexpected).
